About the Artist
Wendy

I am a Fellow of The Society of Designer Craftsmen, The Sussex Guild of Designers and Makers, The Embroiderers’ Guild and am on the Crafts Council Makers’ Index.

I am qualified with a B.Ed. Degree and a Diploma in Creative Embroidery and exhibit and sell my work at Exhibitions and Shows nationwide. Specialising in Freehand Machine Embroidery and related creative stitching techniques, I offer a range of courses, lectures and workshops.    

I welcome commissions both large and small.

Inspiration
Living close to the South Downs, the landscape provides a constant source of inspiration for my stitched textile designs.  My current theme,
A Sense of Placerecords memorable journeys and locations, using fabric, stitch and texture. Architectural structures, textures, and patterns also provide a wealth of ideas which I enjoy exploring.

Design
I record my ideas with sketch, torn paper collage and my camera is always on hand.

A  book about my work is now available. ‘Layer, Paint and Stitch’
